Articles needing improvement
The following is the list of all members of the Kerala Legislative Assembly 2011. Those with red links do not have an article about them yet. To create an article on your own, please click on the red link and write about them. Some helpful reference(s) are mentioned against the name of the member. Feel free to look them up while writing your article. Please also do your research, find more references and add them as citations if you are interested in doing so. Here is a beginner's guide for adding references to a Wikipedia article. To start writing an article about an MLA, click on the red link of the MLA of your choice. Please make sure that you comply with Wikipedia's policies.
The article needs an infobox, a lead paragraph and details about the political life and personal life of the person. It is alright to not have all these details too. However, it is mandatory to have the lead paragraph and references for the same. You can also expand the article by adding other details such as books & publications, controversies, election campaign, personal views etc. Here are example articles about Mullakara Ratnakaran and P. C. Vishnunath. If you are planning to write a lengthier article, please read the Wikipedia entry for Oommen Chandy.
In order to add an infobox to your article, edit this section. You will find the code for the infobox in the editing Window. Copy the code to the top of your article and add relevant details into it. It is alright to leave any number of fields blank, but make sure that you have at least entered the basic minimum information.
